Remembering the spice cake my mum made as I was growing up, this recipe developed as a happy accident. While not what I intended initially, what came about is an amazing "healthy" dessert that is perfect for your family and friends who choose a vegan lifestyle, not to mention anyone who just loves a great tasting cupcake!
I admit, I intended to make a salted caramel cupcake as a treat for my boyfriend. I adapted a basic cupcake recipe I enjoy to become this amazing salted caramel cupcake ... only to find that it didn't taste like a salted caramel cupcake AT ALL!
Instead, we were happily surprised by a cupcake that instantly had me thinking about Mum's Spice Cake. This cupcake is a little denser than some of my others, but not in a bad way. It's grounding and feels like fall.
If you too had spice cake as a child and remember how delicious it made the kitchen smell and then the taste, oh man! Then you'll love this recipe too.
